Racquet Stringing

Things to think about when getting your racquet strung?

Tension: Every racquet has a recommended range. You should string within this range, but if you want more control string the tighter side and if you want more power string the racquet looser.

String Gauge: This has to do with the thickness of the string. The thinner the string the better playability, but they break more often. If you do not break more than once every few months or never at all you should think about using a 17g instead of a 16g.

Type of String: 3 types of string: • Synthetic Gut: Good inexpensive string. • Multi-filament: Soft string that is easy on the arm and has great feel. • Polyester string: Durable string designed for big hitters.
